Description. The spray coatings made by electrostatic spray coating equipment using rotary atomizers are popular for over a decade now. These spray coatings are effective, durable and very safe.
Description of the materials used in the spray coatings. Among other materials, the substances used are polymers such as vinyl, polypropylene, polystyrene, epoxy resins. These materials are often applied on surfaces like concrete, steel, metal, wood and other materials.
Spray coating makes use of chemicals that are either liquids or solids. Some of these chemicals include ethyl acetate, methanol, phenol carbamide, benzene terephthalate, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHT), isopropyl alcohol, acetone and ethanol. Solids are used where a surface can be easily worked into its proper shape. These solids include sand, silicon, cement and others.
Spray coating is not applicable to all types of surfaces. It may not be suitable to use on paints, varnishes, enamels and lacquers as these are not compatible with electrostatic spray coating systems. On the other hand, it may be used on metals like chrome, stainless steel and some types of plastics such as polyvinyl chalcogenide (PVC).
Properties of spray coatings are superior to those of other spray coatings because of the fact that these spray coatings have a non-sticky property. These spray coatings can adhere to nearly any substance without causing any liquid or residue to adhere to the material. This feature makes these electrostatic spray coatings ideal for use on surfaces where adhesion is essential.
Spray coatings are highly effective and highly durable. They are long lasting as they are capable of protecting surfaces from weathering. In addition, these coatings can resist rust, wear, erosion, etching and other harmful conditions that can occur if a surface is not protected properly.
The best coatings have high resistance to ultraviolet light and chemicals. This means that these coatings will not fade or be affected by the sun’s rays or chemicals. such as gasoline, ink, bleach, ammonia and other chemicals that are used in the home.
These spray coatings do not have any smell because their particles are large and are invisible to the eye. However, you should check the surface before using them to make sure it is clear and free from dust.
If you are considering using these surfaces, it is recommended that you check the surface carefully. There may be small cracks in the surface that can allow water to seep under the coating. You need to clean the surface with a solvent cleaner to remove the water.
For most electrostatic coatings, the surface must be completely dry before applying the coating solution. If there is a possibility of water escaping from the surface, you should put a thin layer of silicone before coating the surface. to ensure the coating does not run when applied. Using a thick coat of silicon may also help to prevent water escape.
There is no need to spray a layer over the entire surface. Instead, just a thin coat of silicone over the part of the surface that needs to be coated is enough. You may want to apply a second coat over an area that is exposed to moisture, but you should wait until the first coat has dried thoroughly before you spray a thin coating over the remaining areas of the surface.
When you spray a coat over a surface, it is important that you do so uniformly and evenly. This will ensure that the coating will adhere to the surface without causing a domed appearance. Evenly distributed coats will result in a smooth and even surface.
Spray coatings are also resistant to fire. They will not flake or melt in fire.
